The United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has Formally Recognized Awakening-Together as a Church:
Awakening-Together applied for church status under IRS Code 170(b)(1)(a)(i) on December 15, 2014.In July 2015, we received a letter from the IRS stating that a physical place of worship is required in order for an organization to be classified as a church under the IRS Code. However, this letter was not a final decision. It was a Request for Information. Awakening-Together was provided with the opportunity to show that we are a church based on United States law and legal precedent.
Several people participated in creating our response to the IRS, including several members who wrote letters stating that Awakening-Together is your church of choice.
On December 15, 2015, the IRS agreed with you by awarding Awakening-Together with formal church status.
Thank you to everyone who helped in this process. That includes everyone who currently serves & previously served on our Member Board of Trustees and Board of Directors as well as every member who took the time to write a letter to the IRS on behalf of our application for church status. We appreciate your commitment to our church family!
